There are 40 laps to go at Chicagoland, and the NASCAR Chase drivers are jockeying for position as the opening playoff race winds down.
All of the Chase drivers are currently in the top 15 – including Jeff Gordon, who was lapped earlier in the race – with the exception of Brad Keselowski (17th) and Denny Hamlin, just had a flat tire under green and is now multiple laps down.
Martin Truex Jr. stayed out on the last pit stop and currently leads, ahead of Matt Kenseth, Tony Stewart and Jimmie Johnson.
Most of the drivers are two or three laps short on fuel, so they'll either have to conserve and gamble to the end of the race or make another pit stop.
Carl Edwards had been strong earlier, but is now in 11th place. Dale Earnhardt Jr. is on track for an average day, currently running in the 12th position.
